Our recreational program is ideal for family, friends and individual athletes alike.    We focus on  camaraderie, fun and fitness.    For those that want to compete in community and club crew events, we enter 2 or 3 festivals a year.    Racing is always optional.    Whether you are a beginner paddler or a high performance paddler, if recreation is your goal, this is the program for you.    If you want to step it up, we have a competitive dragon boat crew.   Click here to register for The Warlocks Competitive Dragon Boat Crew
